“Hello fellow Transitioners,
I am contacting you on behalf of Transition Tynedale based in Northumberland, UK.
Would your Transition Community be able to help publicise other Transition projects competing in the ‘Energyshare’ (www.energyshare.com) funding competition?
Transition Tynedale is hoping to secure £100,000 which will be vital
in getting a hyro-power scheme installed on the River Tyne at Hexham.
We hope to fund development and community events for years to come and
more importantly the scheme would act as a model and incentive to other
areas throughout the country.
Three projects from our Transition network have made it to the
Finals of the Energyshare funding competition. They are 3 of just 19
projects left in the running and they have been selected from over 900
community energy groups, which is already an amazing achievement. Even
better news: These projects are not competing against each other! There
are three categories of projects (Large, Medium, Small) and there is one
Transition project in each category. Anyone over 13 years of age with
an email address can vote (please get parent/guardian permission if you
are under 18).
So if you wish to make your vote count, please go to
http://www.energyshare.com/voting and vote.
The Transition projects are:
in the ‘Large’ category – Hexham River Hydro (Transition Tynedale)
in the ‘Medium’ category – Portobello & Leith Community Wind Energy Project (PEDAL (Portobello Transition Town))
in the ‘Small’ category – Shrewsbury Hydro (Transition Town Shrewsbury)
you send this information on to your Transition community and ask them
to support us by casting their votes on the Energyshare website?
The deadline for votes is Saturday 3rd December at 5pm.
